Can I change my mind about natural birth during labour?Pregnancy Gynaecology
I have opted for a natural birth but I am feeling a little nervous now. Can I change my mind and get labour pain medication during labour?
Of course.. you can change your mind anytime! Should you feel you need pain relief at any point in labour, it can and will be offered to you. The pain relief options in labour include nitrous oxide gas, intramuscular opioid injections as well as an epidural. They are all safe and do not result in any significant risk to the baby and mum unlike what is commonly perceived.
